Young Adult Ministry

The parish community of St. Paul the Apostle joins the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in recognizing the tremendous gifts that Catholic young adults – men and women in their late teens, twenties, and thirties – have to bring to church life. We welcome and invite young adults of our parish, whether single, married, with or without children, divorced, or widowed, to enrich our parish with their presence through engagement in the greater parish life as well as specific activities geared for young adult formation and fellowship.

Mission

As young adult members of St. Paul the Apostle parish community, we strive to live the missionary spirit of the first Apostles who, filled with the Holy Spirit, bravely entered into the world to make connections with society and bring the Gospel message of hope to the hopeless, poor, marginalized, and outcast.  We come together in community to grow in faith, and support one another in fellowship in the various stages of our lives. We invite young adults to cheerfully share their time, energies, and talents with our parish and greater community for the good of others.
